To describe your problems to a rubber-duck or other inanimate object. Common in software development, the act of describing your problem (as to a mailing list, friend, or a rubber duck on top of your monitor) often leads to finding the solution just a few moments later. In the mailing list case, rubber ducking would then be to mail the list again saying "Ok, that was dumb, but now I'm stuck on the part where...", then to discover THAT solution immediately after hitting SEND. Repeat, ad lib, fade.
"Sorry to spam the list -- I'm just rubber ducking, this morning. Problem solved. Nothing to see here, move along..."

Masturbation at its best. Men with their meat. Ladies with their beans. No one ever makes it to breakfast, though they're always scrambling their own eggs.
"Thanks for taking me out for pudding at your grandfathers retirement home, but I really must go home so i can rubber duck and tend to my studies before bed."

If I was ever faced with a situation like the world was about to implode, I'd try to rubber duck before it did.
